Tree seen in Rock Garden near Brighton. Anyone know which species it is please?




Difficult to tell without a close up of the leaves.

Reminds me of a Copper Beech though.

Now I thought it was an Acer . . .

I agree , an acer.

Pretty big for an Acer palmatum, but not impossible. A picture of the leaves would clear it up.

I wonder if the wind off the sea has blown the branches like that. You dont say how near the sea it is.

It's about 2 miles North of the English Channel ... I have e-mailed the Brighton & Hove Parks Dept. to find an I.D. for this tree!
